View Full Version : US Marine Tells Australian Girls To Cover Up

It would seem someone is into IRL trolling the Aussies. Anyone from down under heard about this? Anyone else kind of surprised that a marine would be offended by skimpy clothing?

A letter from a US Marine captain criticizing Australian women's clothing, or lack thereof, has prompted angry rebukes from Aussie men and women.
The trouble began when the marine, named Capt. John Campbell, went on a night out in Darwin, Northern Territory. During this night out, he was shocked at the skimpy clothing being worn by Australian females. Unable to contain his outrage, he wrote a letter to the local newspaper, the Northern Territory News.
"It's about having standards, ladies," he wrote. (http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,20797,26558558-952,00.html)
"What are standards? Well, it can begin by dressing in a manner that leaves something to the imagination, to say the least."
The letter has provoked nation-wide outrage in a country where a comfortable climate, not to mention a laid-back attitude, permits many to wear as little as they want.
The Northern Territory News (http://www.ntnews.com.au/article/2010/01/06/113581_ntnews.html) reported that it had been flooded with negative responses to the article. They interviewed one girl, a 19-year-old Darwin dancer named Lana Sandic, who said, 'Most Territory girls would say 'Put it where the sun doesn't shine'.'
Other responses were even less charitable:
"Another bloody American trying to educate the world," a Nightcliff resident said. "Mate, look at your women in the US - Rosanne (Barr) to Britney (Spears). At least we have a bar to raise." Another reader wrote: "Leave your opinions in the USA. PS: You didn't vote for Bush by chance?"
As the spat threatened to become an international incident, the US consulate responded (http://www.ntnews.com.au/article/2010/01/07/113851_ntnews.html) that they could not find a serving US Marine with that name in Australia, and Northern Territory News confirmed they had been unable to contact the Marine since the letter had been received, thus furthering the mystery.
Keen to have the final word on the issue, however, the Northern Territory News posted a link to an online gallery called "Beautiful Territory (http://tools.ntnews.com.au/photos/photo_gallery_popup.php?category_id=565)" that shows off some of the more skimpy Aussie fashions. What do you think?

Come on ladies, don't send us mixed messages. That's what you do every time you dress with less than nothing on

Presumably some kind of zealous protestant suffering from extreme sexual repression. Somebody should tell him that if he really feels tingly in his pee-pee that it's okay to talk to them.

So they couldn't find a serving Marine with that name? Either the author was using an alias or this is an pretty decent troll job.

I like this troll job.

I did similar things as kid with letters to the editor.

Mostly it involved gross historical inaccuracies.

Huh, that's quite the mind set for pickin' up the chicks: "Hey baby, if you put your jacket back on it could really turn into a magical evening for us..."

I'll have to try that some time.

... this is an obvious troll job. The person who wrote it is probably a native and just wanted to speak with an air of authority.

Ever been to the Northern Territory? It's like 35 Celcius and 90% humidity at night time.

Brilliant use of reverse psychology. If we can just convince Hillary Clinton to make a similar statement, all your women will be naked.

Great! I saw Kassandra Dunser. WOWZA!

I never thought I'd find a Marine that thinks women need to wear more clothes and cover more skin.

Marines ARE in the Navy. They just have never learned to take the news well.

Hopefully that's just a male model, otherwise that sailor needs a serious shave while in such a formal uniform.
